Disused pub to be turned into home

Laura Kearns 26th Aug, 2017   0

A DISUSED village pub is set to be turned into a five-bedroomed home.

Permission for the change of use to The Bull Inn on Rugby Road in Weston Under Wetherley has been granted by Warwick District Council.

It will see the pub – which closed its doors in 2014 – completely revamped and its 30-space car park developed into gardens and an orchard.

Objections were made for the plans, with neighbours concerned the land could be better used for more, smaller properties.

One objector said: “Weston already has a large number of extensive properties. This one is sited inappropriately and makes poor use of a site that could be used to provide several smaller and more proportionate properties.

“They would add to the rural character of that part of the village and provide sensible accommodation for several families, rather than providing a dominant large property that is quite out of proportion and is somewhat pompously described as Weston House.”

But the owners – who bought the property from brewery Greene King for nearly £300,000 – have been granted permission to start work later this year.
